    i know this sound stupid, but somehow my 2.0 usb , has somehow changed into a 1.1 usb slot strange huh?
    and as a result i cannot play my ps2 using in the easy cap (don't have a tv or a monitor, didn't find a ps2 portable monitor) all things said it's sucks
    it only happened on windows though, my Mac system profiler still say it's a High-speed USB port

    does anyone know how to fix this?, or how to use easycap with mac?
    link to the product

    Would really need more information to give a better answer. Such as motherboard specs, has anything changed recently hardware wise or software wise.

    Anyway, you could try reinstalling your motherboard drivers, also drivers for easycap. Have you tried other usb ports on your computer?

    Try uninstalling the USB drivers entirely. Yes, the USB drivers, and any driver that says "USB" in the Device Manager. Once done, reset.

    Now that your comp has no USB drivers, reinstall them again. The reset is important, since it'll clear the memory of any trace of USB drivers. With any luck, this'll make sure you have fresh, clean drivers that work properly.

    At least it's fixed. If it doesn't happen again for a few days, you should be able to just assume it won't happen for a long while.
